Large LCV of the Year

“The Crafter is going from strength to strength, with a growing customer base and reputation for great quality, driveability and usability. This is backed up by awards such as the ones received this month from prestigious titles such as Parkers and Commercial Fleet." - Carl zu Dohna, Director of Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles

Fleet directors and Commercial Fleet’s journalists awarded the Volkswagen Crafter 'Large LCV of the Year' after considering its price, reliability, standard specification, driving dynamics and choice of variants available. And thanks to the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles nationwide network of almost 100 Van Centres and Authorised Repairers, you’ll also find us working with you to offer fleet and business support for our award-winning vans.

Van of the Year Best Large Van

“The Crafter has always impressed us with its ease of operation: it’s incredibly good to drive for such a large vehicle, offers great real-world efficiency and has large load volumes, with a cab environment that’s second to none.”

Good things come in threes. Like awards. And vans. Take the Crafter - it’s so good that Parkers Vans made it Best Large Van for three years in a row and voted it Van of the Year 2020. Parkers recognised the quality engineering that makes the Crafter reliable and efficient, as well as comfy touches in the cab to make every shift easier. Three years of happy customers and hard-working vans. Now there’s a hat-trick worth celebrating.

Your Second Pair Of Eyes

The Crafter's innovative and intelligent driver assistance systems help to keep you and your cargo safe. 

From congested city multi-drop work to long-distance deliveries, our technology helps to reduce stress and increase safety on the road.

Book Test Drive

Front Assist and City Emergency Breaking

The Crafter comes with state-of-the-art driver assistance systems. Available as standard, Front Assist uses a radar to monitor your distance from the traffic in front and alerts you if you are too close. City Emergency Braking reduces the chance of a collision by triggering emergency braking when it detects critical distances.

Lane Keep Assist

Available as an option, Lane Keep Assist countersteers the vehicle if the driver unintentionally drifts from a lane. The system also emits audible and visual warnings via the multi-function display to alert the driver of danger.

AirBags

Driver, front passenger and side/head airbags give the best possible protection in the event of head-on and side impacts. The front passenger airbag can be deactivated using the vehicle.

Seatbelt Warning

If seatbelts aren't fastened, the seatbelt warning reminds the driver and the front passenger to fasten their belts with a visual warning when the engine is started, and an audible warning after setting off.

Electromechanical Servotonic Steering

Fitted as standard, Electromechanical Servotronic steering provides a speed-sensitive operation with active return. This improves the steering sensation around the mid-point, providing a level of steering precision previously nonexistent in commercial vehicles.

Additional Safety Systems


Electronic Stabilisation Programme (ESP)
Prevents under- or over-steering via targeted braking of individual wheels.



Anti-lock braking system (ABS)
Prevent the wheels from locking-up while maintaining manoeuvrability.



Traction control system (TCS)
Prevents wheelspin.

Impressive Loadability

The Crafter is the best in its class, featuring wide sliding doors that open up to 1,311 mm, and a high load compartment height of up to 2,196 mm.

Choice of wheels and other options may affect fuel consumption and emissions data (which may affect the amount of VED payable and therefore the ROTR price). Please consult your local Van Centre for details of VED charges and recommended 'on the road' prices applicable to passenger carriers registered after 1 April 2020.
